Welcome to our Site!

The Gulf Coast Harpers Association is a chapter of the International Society of Folk Harpers and Craftsmen (ISFHC). Our chapter is an educational support group sponsoring 2 scholarships to the Houston Summer Harp Festival, providing the 5th/6th grade prize for the local Milligan Harp competition (see the Milligan Memorial Page), and contributing to the Gulf Coast Cruinniú for studies in Irish music.  The Gulf Coast Harpers is also a group of dedicated ensemble players, encouraging each other and the community (both young and old) by fostering ensemble playing in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere.  Beginning 2023 there will be 4 Harp Circles per year held at Emerson Unitarian, a centrally located and welcoming venue.

This is the official Gulf Coast Harpers site (ending in .COM not .org.) We also welcome you to visit our sister site: the Houston Chapter of the American Harp Society.
